President of a Yoruba Socio-Cultural group, Oodua Redemption Alliance (ORA), Comrade Victor Taiwo on Tuesday declared that there are local herbs good enough to cure incurable diseases such as CoronaVirus
The ORA President who stated this while briefing newsmen in Ibadan said Yoruba race is more than prepared to get cure for the deadly virus as ” Yoruba race is blessed with local herbs which are good enough to cure incurable diseases given the right atmosphere and inspiration”.
According to Comrade Taiwo, “getting a cure for CoronaVirus will help the Yoruba race as the angel for the liberation of the world from the ravaging monster of which coronavirus has flaunted itself to be.
“This organization sent out a crack team of researchers to explore our local pharmacists or herbalists who claim the potentiality or dexterity of curing the pandemic. After taking the samples of their drug agents, we consulted with a veritable professor who is one of the leading pharmacologists in the country serving in the University of Ibadan who encouraged us to make every effort toward fighting the global menace with the support for us in all ways open to him”, he said.
The ORA President stressed, “today, we are in motion. And so, the next line action is to call on our state governments in Yorubaland as well as the well-to-do among us to rise to the occasion by supporting the required funding of this exercise. As we speculate, this endeavour might succeed at saving the whole world and giving us an envious place on the world map.”
To achieve this, Comrade Taiwo charged the governors of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti and Kwara States, as well as prominent Yoruba indigenes, to support the cause, saying, as part of its determination to help in finding a cure for the virus, the group sent out a team to interface with local herbalists with the potential of curing the pandemic, disclosing that the management of the University of Ibadan is ready to assist with its facilities.
“Thus, as a direct challenge, we hereby call on all our governors of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti and Kwara States to collectively or individually rise to the occasion. We also call on well-to-do among us to rise in unison for the general rescue from the beast which does not respect or exonerate anyone whatever his status, whether rich or poor, young or old.”
Comrade Taiwo , added, “we therefore, call on the great people like His Imperial Majesty, Oba Fredrick Enitiolorunda, Obateru Akinruntan, the Olugbo of Ugboland; Dr. Mike Adenuga; Mr. Femi Otedola; Chief Kensington Adebutu; Mr. Bayo Ogunlesi (US); Chief Kase Kayode Lawal (US); Chief Oba Otudeko; Mrs. Folorunso Alakija; Dr. Wale Babalakin; Senator Rasheed Ladoja, and a host of others too numerous to mention, to rise to the occasion”.
